And I CAUGHT a fish!
So the ceremony is supposed to start at 3pm in front of Blackstone Glacier from a boat. A buddy of mine is there as well and he has shrimp pots down and wants to check them. I hitch a ride to Blackstone Bay (where the glacier is) and have him drop me off.
Nothing crazy but hooked maybe 5 or 6 rockfish waiting for the ceremony to start. One was a really nice 24.5 inch yelloweye rockfish. Decent size for being so close to port.
I saw more whales than fish, maybe a dozen in the 3 hours I fished. One pod came so close that i could smell their "breath". Halitosis to the max....nasty.
But what a great time. How often you get to go to a ceremony like that in a kayak...in front of a glacier...and catch a 24.5 inch rockfish!?!?!?!?! Life is GOOD!
My outback comes TUESDAY!!!!!!! WOOOHOOOOOO!
